AWS re:Invent 2015 – a Theme – “I am very happy to announce….”

by | Nov 16, 2015

So I had the pleasure along with the 19000 Attendees to attend the AWS re:Invent 2015 in Las Vegas, I wish.
Unfortunately I wasn’t that lucky so I have had to settle for the next best thing, watching the sessions on youtube.  AWS have their own YouTube channel which has all the session plus other AWS related videos for you to view.
Given I haven’t watched every session, and as everyone is interested in different topics and has varying levels of knowledge in AWS I am not going to say you must watch this session or that session. Rather, I suggest you have a look at the AWS YouTube channel and see if anything takes your fancy.
I will, however make a few comments about the keynotes. This is where they announce their new services and introduce organisations that are using AWS in interesting or unique ways. As I am amazed at the rate new services that are released by AWS I’ll focus on what new services were announced in the two Keynotes.
Day 1 AWS re:Invent 2015 Keynote | Andy Jassy or the condensed version.

“I am very happy to announce….”

Day 2 AWS re:Invent 2015 Key note | Werner Vogels or the condensed version

“I am very happy to announce….”

Note: Not all services are available in all regions and the release dates are what I could see from the two key notes so it may pay to check if they are available before getting too excited.

As you can see there were a lot of new and exciting services announced at AWS re:Invent 2015 and like I said I haven’t watched all the sessions. However, I have tried to list and link to the associated breakout session for each announcement.
The above isn’t a full list of new services and features announced at re:Invent. AWS also release new services at a fast rate so I recommend checking the ‘What’s New from Amazon Web Services‘ page on a regular basis to ensure you are aware of all the new features and services that may make your life as an AWS user easier.

Note: At the time of writing this blog post, the YouTube channel was the next best thing however last night I was fortunate enough to attend the local AWS meetup in Auckland where Richard Busby from AWS gave a great overview of the new services that were announced.
